Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturing country depending on the country of origin.
Ambrodil S (ambroxol, salbutamol) is a syrup used to help remove mucus from the lungs and airways when the mucus is so thick and/or sticky that it's difficult for the patient to cough it out. It can be used in both acute and chronic conditions, and is suitable for ages 2 and up.
Used as directed this is a very safe medication with only mild gastrointestinal side effects and no known interactions with other medications.
How it Works
Ambrodil S contains two active ingredients:
Together these medications help patients remove excess mucus from the lungs and throat, improving the ability to breathe and alleviating discomfort, as well as restoring the protective properties of normal mucus function.
Ambroxol also has a local anesthetic effect and some anti-inflammatory properties, which soothes pain, swelling and tenderness in the throat. Ambroxol is sold as a lozenge, without the added salbutamol, for exactly this purpose, though the syrup also provides benefit in this area.
Ambrodil S is often used to alleviate difficult coughing and/or soothe airways in:
If throat irritation is present the syrup's anesthetic effects may be noticeable immediately after administration. Full benefits of ambroxol's expectorant properties and salbutamol's bronchidilation effects should be noticeable after 30 minutes. Most patients notice effects start to decline after 3 to 4 hours.
Each bottle of Ambrodil S syrup comes with a measuring cup and dosage instructions. A doctor should be consulted before administering this medication to children under 2 years of age.
As mentioned above, side effects from Ambrodil S are typically very mild. The only side effects associated with ambroxol are mild nausea, indigestion, heartburn, and, more rarely, diarrhea or vomiting. Patients with preexisting gastrointestinal issues---such as ulcers or irritable bowel syndrome---should use this product with caution and consider alternative options if it exacerbates these conditions. There are no known drug interactions associated with ambroxol.
Salbutamol can produce shakiness, restlessness, jitteriness and other stimulant-related side effects, though they are unlikely when the medication is ingested at the low doses found in this medication. Some medications, notably certain antidepressants and blood pressure medications, may reduce the effectiveness of salbutamol but will not produce dangerous complications.
Patients should take care not to take other medications that produce the same effects---other expectorants or other bronchodilators---without first checking with a doctor or pharmacist.
The effects of Ambrodil S on unborn or nursing babies are unclear. It is unlikely to cause harm but should generally be avoided unless benefits outweigh potential risks, particularly in the first trimester.
